Shahrazad at the MFA!

img_2339I was browsing the Islamic art gallery at the MFA and this image immediately reminded me of our favorite heroine. Here we see a Persian noble woman reading, which instantly called to mind Shahrazad’s introduction (the Haddawy translation listing her academic credentials, not the Europeans describing her perfect proportions). I like to think this could be her, being the exemplary woman of the Middle East here in Boston yet again!
